Burrito Pot Pies
So, I went against my better judgement and made this recipe without it having any ratings. I gave it a rating of 3 because even though it wasn't great, I didn't completely hate it. First of all, my boyfriend was not going to be full off of the way it was so I added about 1 1/4 cups of rice which was a nice hearty addition. Second, before I put the biscuit on top, I sprinkled the remaining cheese on top of the mixture. Third, please note I made this in a 13x9 baking dish instead of individual portions (were only 2 people, this was much easier).
Now for the critique. The main problem with this dish is the sweetness. Between the salsa and the corn, it is way to sweet! Next time I plan on using just a can of diced tomatoes instead of salsa. The sweetness from the corn and salsa almost made the dish to sweet to eat. Another problem was the avocado. I love avocado but it did not help this dish at all. It was a strange texture and the flavor did nothing to help the dish. Overall, with a few modifications, this could be an amazing dish but the way it is, it's just ok.
One of the things I would like to point out is the biscuit part is amazing! We tossed the last little bit of the casserole but not before eating the last of the biscuit! I added some minced garlic because I love to make garlic-cheddar biscuits and it was fantastic!
